No sense getting fancy. The Yankees are sticking with what worked in the division series.

And I’ll be perfectly honest, this lineup might have been posted three minutes earlier, but I stopped at Steak ‘n Shake for some frozen goodness on my way to the park. It’s the little things in life.

Derek Jeter SS
Nick Swisher RF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Marcus Thames DH
Jorge Posada C
Curtis Granderson CF
Brett Gardner LF

One quick observation: This city is pretty excited about baseball. I have a great friend who works as a producer for a television station here in Dallas, and the past two times the Yankees were in town, Laura and I talked about how much this has remained a football town even with the Rangers playing pretty good baseball.

At lunch today, Laura was saying the opposite. The town is caught up in baseball. There are claw and antler t-shirts everywhere. I listened to some of the craziest sports talk radio on my way to the park — there was a remake of New York, New York that rhymed the lyrics, Hamilton’s bat with Bengie’s kind of fat — and every person I’ve greeted at the stadium has been thrilled about playoff baseball. There’s excitement here. It’s going to be a good atmosphere tonight.
